Harbin's Singing Debut...

This year Harbin is singing in the Children's Choir at First Baptist Church of Snellville. He has always loved music and I just knew he would love to be able to sing with other kids.

Each week they practice for about 45 minutes. At his first practice he told me he didn't like it because they didn't get to sing on stage. I quickly explained to him that all choirs must practice and then they can PERFORM on stage.

Well, a few weeks ago, he got his chance to perform on stage. The children's choir sang in conjunction with the Pops Orchestra. They did a movie theme and the orchestra played songs from movies including Superman, Chronicles of Narnia, and Pirates of the Carribbean. The kids sang 3 songs, and Harbin did great.

Although he had praticed once before on stage, he had never practiced with the orchestra. He was a bit overwhelmed at first and moved his mouth, but did very few motions. He warmed up as the evening progressed and I captured a few shots of him doing the motions and singing along.

Thanks to Pop-Pop, Aunt Kristen, Cousin Wesley, and Great Grandma Skillin for coming out to hear him sing. His next concert is Novemeber 22nd and we hope to see all of you there!!!

The mom.
